This image by Wawi Navarroza is included in the book “GR-09022017” published in Norway, 2017, marking 40 years of the Voyager Golden Records . “GR-09022017” includes work by over 100 invited photographers and artists, amongst them Alec Soth, Daisuke Yokota, Lina Selander, Lorenzo Vitturi, Lucas Blalock, Pieter Hugo, Pipilotti Rist, Torbjørn Rødland, Tracey Moffatt and Wolfgang Tillmans, edited by Silja Leifsdottir.
The publication is inspired by the Voyager Golden Records, an archive established in 1977 and sent out into space as a coded record, intended as a greeting to extraterrestrial life and/or our future descendants. The record was placed on board the Voyager spacecraft and is currently orbiting in space, not heading toward any particular star, but estimated to pass within 1.6 light-years of the star Gliese 445, currently in the constellation Camelopardalis, in about 40,000 years. The project was directed by NASA in collaboration with the astronomer and writer Carl Sagan and his team.
